Deficiency

Deficiency: Dietary deficiency of any type

Introduction: Inadequate diet leads to various malnutrition disorders such as vitamin deficiencies or mineral deficiencies. General malnutrition is common in developing countries in areas of famine and starvation. In the modern world, general malnutrition and also particular conditions can occur in transient populations such as the homeless. For example, a small number of cases of scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) occur each year in the homeless, in those who have not eaten any fruit at all for several months.
